Interesting weather pattern. Not the usual summer pattern, but not spring-like either. It's rained here twice today at a pretty heavy rate,...not a usual thing in mid-July. I've not seen a lot of heavy rains after dark in my 45 years on Colorado's front range.
I've been keeping my tractor busy mowing since late May and haven't had to run water very much. It's going to be hard for growers around here to get their cuttings of hay in if it doesn't dry up occasionally! And quite a bit depends on that,...BTW.
Knock on wood, though,...we have not seen the hail season that we've seen in previous years!
Unfortunately, all that mowing keeps me from my Camaro and my other projects! I'm finishing my exterior for paint,...is anyone else working on their car right now? A topic for discussion,...
Todd.

Good for you Todd! More time to work on the Camaro! I'll have to see it someday! When's the next show? Me and my Camaro are on 36 like every other day at least!
I WAS able to get my collectors vehicle plates back!!! The grandfather clause applies even if the registration lapsed! So for all you dudes and chicks that have a car newer than 75 and previously registered as collectors can get those plates back, as long as the title wasn't changed.

Thanks to both of you!
Yeah, I keep busy,...disciplined to multi-task may not be a good thing.

Somehow, all that hyperactivity still keeps me from shows,...just too busy for them.
My car is my Avitar picture (although the "Camaro" decal is rolled up on a shelf, in my garage now). The car just requires a refinish and recoat due to all the miles that I put on it since the original paint. I'll have bodywork done and a couple of coats of paint on it before fall.
Right now I'm struggling through redoing our master shower, and the wet spring weather has made our 3.5 acres high maintenance this spring/summer.
Someday, I'd like to get this car set up properly with the right Z-28 springs, a suspension rebuild, and perhaps go to the 3.42:1 rear gear. But I might have to go back to work to afford it !
Todd.

Thanks, nutchevy!
I am almost afraid to tell anyone, since we are so fortunate. Most folks are still reeling from the last economic disaster,...
Thanks again, Todd.

Cheyenne Frontier Days ended this weekend also. I watched for the E-9 deisel-electric locomotive, UP 951, that was pulling the Frontier Days train in place of UP 844, but never saw it on Saturday. Probably went by while I was placing tile,...damn.

Hit the Golden Super Cruise tonight, that's always a fun deal. Perfect weather for a cruise down the strip with the t-tops off. Hope you guys are having a good weekend as well
